The answer to that question is: It's because that's what XTree did! Kim is faithfully reproducing XTree.

Nevertheless, it still makes no sense to me. So unless someone can explain why XTree displayed that, I consider it an XTree design bug.

In any case, as I proposed, it makes more sense now to indicate the mode of the displayed filter.
